We are meticulous in our thinking and analysis, and diligent in the development and application that follows. At the heart of this effort is a striving for betterment. Betterment of the circumstances for those we work for, and the audience we communicate to. Betterment of our work, and of ourselves. It is this philosophy that ensures we do not settle for strategies that leave ‘winners and losers’, instead we only seek to offer win-win solutions through strategic communications.
We strip away the non-essential layers until we find and understand the very fundamentals of the challenge. It is an approach that demands we have in-depth local knowledge of the environments, cultures and societies in which we work and build strategies based on insight, not observation. By seeing our strategies through to implementation and evaluation, we never lose sight of the fact that we are accountable for our ideas.
We are part of Moby Group. Established in 2003, Moby Group has advanced the media industry in a number of emerging and frontier markets extending from Central Asia to the Middle East and beyond.

Through Moby Group’s expansion into key IT businesses, Lapis provides its clients turnkey end-to-end communication solutions that include design, supply, implementation and support. From mobile app development and website building to advanced wireless, fiber optic and microwave communication technologies. In some of the most restrictive cultural, social and media environments, for example, Lapis has provided individuals access to news, information, entertainment and the opportunity to engage with targeted communication using Integrated Voice Technology (IVR).
Moby Group and Lapis have pioneered the way in Sports Advocacy. Since 2012 the Roshan Afghan Premier League has injected into the country’s collective conscious a sense of national pride, provided role models to the youth and undercut insurgents' calls for fighting through the promotion of values such as unity, tolerance, peace and solidarity. Lapis continues to develop this model for application within other territories.
At Lapis, our business is built upon the expertise, experiences and unique insights of our people. Our backgrounds and stories are as varied as the work we create.
